Lorraine Ann Skoglund, 94 year-old resident of San Diego, passed away from pancreatic cancer on Sunday, December 29, 2019 at La Jolla Scripps Memorial Hospital. She was surrounded by her loved ones. Lorraine was born at home on March 22, 1925 in Hopkins Minnesota to John and Margaret (Mason) Schneider. After her mother passed away, Lorraine became the surrogate mother to her 4 younger siblings at the very young age of 15. Lorraine had many friends and was regarded as a most delightful person by her class. Following high school Lorraine married her high school sweetheart (Junior) Jay Skoglund on February 24,1945. Jay and Lorraine resided in Hopkins, St. Peter, Benson and Bloomington Minnesota before moving to San Diego California in August 1955. Nothing was more important to Lorraine than her faith and her family. She worked many years in the office of the First Presbyterian Church of San Diego and served on many church committees. She also worked at San Diego Mesa College for more than twenty years registering incoming students. Her faith was always shining brightly and in her last few days she was at total peace knowing she would soon be in the arms of her Lord Jesus and reunited with family. Lorraine's most significant hobbies were her children and grandchildren. She often hosted family gatherings, created special moments and left a legacy of unconditional love. She also enjoyed going out to lunch with many of her dear friends. Lorraine was preceded in death by both of her parents, brother Ray Schneider, sister Grace Peteler, son Gary and husband Jay Skoglund.
